Make Net Neutrality real

Net Neutrality equals a cyberspace highway which is, as the Wikipedia describes it, “free of restrictions on content, sites, or platforms, on the kinds of equipment that may be attached, and on the modes of communication allowed, as well as one where communication is not unreasonably degraded by other communication streams”.

With that in the wings, tomorrow will see the kickoff for SaveOurNet.ca’s Open Internet Town Halls running in Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver.

The idea is to spark discussions about the future of the Internet.

p2pnet, together with the Real News Network, rabble.ca, TheTyee.ca, Beyond Robson, and StraightGoods, will be streaming the Toronto event live on Monday.

Speakers at the various meetings include Ottawa law professor Michael Geist, NDP digital affairs critic Charlie Angus, Mark Surman, executive director, Mozilla Foundation, Rocky Gaudrault, CEO, Teksavvy Solutions, and Bill St. Arnaud, chief research officer, CANARIE.

More on that tomorrow.

Meanwhile, also speaking, and feeling very nervous about it, will be  Steve Anderson, co-founder of SaveOurNet, and one of the organisers.

Last night’s live video broadcast from Toronto, the first of three SaveOurNet.ca Open Internet Town Halls, was disappointing.

p2pnet, together with the Real News Network, rabble.ca, TheTyee.ca, Beyond Robson, StraightGoods, The Georgia Straight and MichaelGeist.ca, carried code which theoretically allowed readers to watch the town hall meeting, meant to promote discussion about the future of the Internet.

But although broadcast was fine when  I could see it, for me, it was jerky and patchy, and I gave up after half-an-hour.

I also tried to join in via the chat, but had the same experience as Devil’s Advocate who posted, “the CAPTCHA is totally fsked”.

But none of this detracts from the event itself which was, and still is, a great idea. And from what little I could see, the people who were lucky enough to be actually in the audience instead of online got a lot out of it.

Rabble.ca  has a 116:44 minutes (133.59 MB) of audio.

Monday’s live video broadcast from Toronto, the first of three SaveOurNet.ca Open Internet Town Halls, was was a bit of a viewing disaster.

But as far as I know, the second event scheduled for Ottawa tonight, won’t be featured as a video.

Be that as it may, p2pnet reader Robert says he’s planning on being there and has offered to take questions for p2pnet readers.

“I doubt I’ll have much time so they should be few and concise,” he says in an email, adding:

“It’s a shame members of industry on the opposition won’t be there … then we could really drill them to shed light on how little they know.

“I hope to leave work by 17:00 EST, so any questions should be in before then.”

Robert will be watching this item so either leave a question as a comment, or get in touch with him directly –  satchboogieca at yahoo dot ca.

I might go check out the event. I'm still debating with myself if I'm going to it or not.
